The film is based on a classic Japanese tale about 47 samurai in 18th-century Japan who avenge the murder of their master, 47 Ronin, has a cast Japanese actors- except for Reeves.
While talking about working with the cast, Keanu admitted that even though everyone was really nice to him and they got along great, he still couldn't hang out and speak Japanese, so in a way he was always Kai, the outcast character, Universal Pictures India reported.
Based upon one of Japan's most enduring legends, this extraordinary tale of courage has its origins in the early 18th century, when 47 noble Samurai honoured the untimely death of their master by avenging him. This groundbreaking re-imagining about the legend of the Ronin's ultimate sacrifice and undying honour is now being reborn for an entirely new generation.
The film is set to release in India on 3rd January in English, Hindi, Tamil and Telugu.
